Use the lastest C/C++ Compiler (i preffer use Microsoft Visual C/C++) and download the latest DirectX SDK, downloading 3D engine library makes your work easier like Genesis3D.

How complex do you want to get? Your question is very open-ended. It could be as simple as 3D tic-tac-toe to as complex as the next Quake or Unreal, and the answer will depend heavily on how much programming experience do you have or plan to acquire.

If you have little or no programming experience to start with, you should start with "mods", modification of existing games. Quake, Unreal, Half-Life, etc. all have their own dedicated mod community. Counterstrike is probably the best known "mod". Start with simple mods like player models and level design, then go on to design "total conversions".

If you have done all that, it's time for you to start creating your own game based on existing 3D engines. You can try some of the existing engines like Genesis3D, or even LithTech, or you can even create your own based on Direct3D. That's up to you.

From there on, sky's the limit.

If you are using C++ for your development of 3D game then try to use OpenGL
